Hey surf-n-turf!
Thanks man! Great hearing from others along the same train of thought! Because of Company privacy issues,I can't post our latest greatest tees...But if you're ever in town and wanna swing by the studio in Orange,CA-gimme a shout! Every once in awhile,a bunch of us designers will get together to talk shop and brainstorm-really fun stuff! I think I do have one tee shirt design online and it's from ISMquarterly.com.There was a tee contest and I got 3rd place(all the back issues and a free subscription!) The tee is called "Hai Karate" and is just the tip of the iceberg! Send me a PM with your address and I'll burn ya a disc of some of me favorites!How is the design business in your neck of the woods?You got a great website,it shows you work and is simple to get around!My webguy hooked it up so I have access behind the scenes and can change verbage and pieces-piece of cake! As for prints-I'm working on 6 limited edition prints(2 are tiki-1 is a stained glass fish-1 is a watercolor of a mechanical swamp-1isa piece called "the conversation" with a man in aboat talking to a fish-the original sold so I got it scanned for prints)These prints will be 96 bit 9000 ppi and we can make 'em up to about 6x6 feet!They're printed on canvas-museum wrapped and embellished by hand very neat and pretty! I plan on releasing them the night of my show and will post the goods on there! These things are so detailed that you can see hairs on it and all these little microscopic things that your eye would never see! They look just like the originals-probably better!I'll post those as soon as I get the good scans back!
Keep plugging chum,it's the only way that things get done!

That's understandable. The peeps I work for should do the same. My stuff gets knocked off CONSTANTLY!

We take a bunch of designs down to the International Surf Expo (trade show type thing for resortwear/giftshop, etc. industry) in Orlando, Fl. twice a year. Get lotsa business there. Pretty much got the mailand U.S., Hawaii, Guam and most of the Caribbean islands covered in fine tee's from yo's truly.

Those ltd. edition prints sound like they are going to be hot! Can't wait to see them!

Surf-n-Turf
Sorry!
that sounded so corporate! "privacy issues"! Getting knocked off is a badge of honor-an homage from younger designers who will eventually replace us when we burn out! Anyways,like your markets-all tropical and laid back! What a great area/demographic to cater to!They'll keep your shirts the longest-'cause of the memories!You certainly have an eye for well-crafted old school design and colors! Where the heck is Folly Beach? Anyways, this page doesn't have a picture yet,so.......here's one on wood with gouache/black and gold ink!

Thanks LLT and comps back at you. You've got the killer color thing going on, man! I like the little 'XXX' on the tiki's 'peepee flap'. Too cool.

Folly Beach is waaaay over here on the 'right coast' just outside of Charleston, South Cackalacky. The city calls itself "The Edge of America" but I prefer "Mayberry by the Sea" because it's a tiny, sleepy, close-knit community--a place where you might run into an 'Andy Taylor' or an 'Aunt Bea' and we've even got a few 'Barney Fife's' running around here too.

I just signed up yesterday. So I thought I'd post two tiki things I've made.

Hard shell gourd with pyrography.


Hand carved stamp on tissue paper.

As I promised a few days ago-here's a piece I painted with ink and paint pens on a big 3" round canvas! It has this nifty bevelling on the side! This painting was a little tropical paradise for my wife.My studio hut is the one nearest to the volcano,feeding off of Pele's fire and Inspiration.

thanks again Hewey!Being down under,you're a lot closer to this kind of tropical paradise than I am!Here's a green village that I finally finished about two weeks ago! It was half done for almost a year! I guess being on TC and chatting it up with fellow arteests really does inspire one.This village is kind of a blend of different cultures and then some,twisted around into an idyllic paradise-isn't that what tiki's all about? Cheers!

Thanks Benzart!
Checked out your site and love those small carvings!It must have been quite a transition from the bigger pieces! Your detail and aesthetic are out of control! If you haven't been to Benz' site-go check it out!
http://benzartstuff.com
Crazy small pieces!Details rule! Thanks for the props! I've been getting ready for a huge one man show in August,but I'll post new stuff when I can! Seeing that you are a lover of detail...I present you with "the Evening Visit",I think it's around 2x4 and it's gouache on gessoed panel with water soluble pencils.

Aloha Fellow Creators!
To hear such kind words from fellow artists/artisans really makes you wanna create more! No wonder those art movements of old (Dada/Surrealists/Symbolists) produced so much! It was because they shared ideas and art and advice and encouragement! Thank you! And Ben,the sole reason I paint is so I can afford to have you transform my home into a tropical Hideaway.Gotta work on getting the home first...Your work is incredible,Ben-you're a true "master of your craft" (Sorry,that sounded kinda freemason-ish) as well as living legend! Thanks for the kudos Rev! I'm posting a meeting hut (of sorts) for you-I wonder what a meeting hut built by your hand would look like?

"the Meeting Hut" 4x6'
